HPE 304 (Kinesiology) and PED 512 (Biomechanics)

Template for the Movement Analysis Project – Spring 2022

400 Points

Each student will analyze a series of 3 pictures or images, that have been previously drawn/selected.

Use the tables presented later in this document (as the template) and adjust columns right or left as necessary. The tables must be shown in a neat and professional manner for clarity, reader-friendliness, and easy-grading. Rows may be added in cases where a joint is performing multiple movements or be in multiple positions. If there are any questions, or if you need clarifications, regarding something about the images, please consult with Dr. Conkle ASAP. DO NOT wait until the last minute to ask questions!! You must address each body part.

All information in the table MUST align all the way across with the material in the left column. Do NOT place information across 2 pages for the same joint, movement, muscles, etc. If a given joint on both the right and left are in the EXACT SAME POSITION, say so in the table’s left-hand column (Column 1) and treat it that way all the way across once, not twice.

Note that this assignment may take a more than a few pages for this to appear neat, professional, and reader-friendly.
